religious, this is a government that will call -- with the european union, a clash with the obama administration and will not curry favor with the israeli public. this kind of government might not survive. >> this party led by a formal journalist could now play a role in a more modern government. another newcomer is shaking israel's political landscape. >> benjamin netanyahu has taken this page -- taken the stage. let's listen. >> that was the whole of israeli citizens. i'm hoping to leave these changes and for this purpose, we ought to create a wide as possible government. i started this task already this evening. the government that will be created will be based on the following principles. the government will be based on five central ideas. the strength and security facing the great challenges. and the main principle was and has been and will be to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. secondly, responsibility for the economy in the face of the continual global crisis. thirdly, a governmental responsibility for yearning for a real peace. enhancement approved equality in ne
-state solution for two peoples, based on security and mutual recognition. that's the position of the obama administration, and i think that's the position of lapeed's party, as well. in terms of the relationship with the united states, we're committed to the closest possible alliance with the united states. that has been the situation for the last four years, and that will continue. you are right that there's a greater emphasis on some of the social issues in our country, which are not so different than the issues in the united states. that includes a livable middle class wage, a housing for young people, economic opportunities, these have been the issues that have really come to the forefront in the last elections in israel. >> might it be necessary for the prime minister to back off of the new settlements, for instance, which are such a bone of contention with the administration here, and, of course, with the palestinians? >> i think there's a strong centrist feeling the settlements are not the major issues in the search for peace. settlements can be negotiated in the dreblth tairect tal
that will build its future. >> reporter: the president, once criticized by his own party's left for caving into republicans, seemed emboldened by his reelection and ready for a fight. >> yesterday's speech at the capitol was not about bipartisanship. it was about the agenda that barack obama, a democrat, the direction he wants to take the country. republicans can come along if they'd like. >> reporter: on the other end of pennsylvania avenue, minority leader mitch mcconnell congratulated the president before he accused mr. obama of being hyperpartisan. >> the era of liberalism is back. an unabashedly far left of center inauguration speech certainly brings back memories of the democratic party of ages past. >> reporter: the immediate battle is over the nation's borrowing limit, which will be reached next month. republican leaders once insistent that any increase be matched with an equal amount of spending cuts are now offering to raise the debt ceiling for three months in exchange for passing a budget. >> it's time for us to come to a plan that will, in fact, balance the budget over the nex
on the theme of ooh unity anymore, because we don't have it and look, i know that president obama gets opposed by the republicans, but whatever party in power gets opposed by the opposing party, i mean, that's what politics is all about. but the job of a leader is to somehow figure a way around that. >> exactly. >> finding common ground. >> what is it is, it's still a job. answer can't be they're against me and it can't be, i'm not saying it's an easy job, but it can't be the answer. >> the republicans are willing to work with him to address the figure issues, but you have to start off by acknowledging them aen for the president to say with regard to the debt and deficit we don't have to talk about tough decisions, the generation that built the country doesn't need to be pitted against the younger generation and that everything, you know, can work out fine without making tough decisions, well, unfortunately, the president's not showing the leadership that's needed to say, we do have a spending problem, we've got to address it. the incredibly important entitlement programs which are vital, but
party and -- so i think that efforts like the occupy movement are very important in terms of -- barack obama would understand, as a former career organizer, you do not get noticed, especially if you're poor and disadvantaged, unless you do something to bring attention to the issues that are important. tavis: i agree with everything you said except for one. when dr. king did pushed the wrong button for lyndon johnson, you heard the tapes. you are doing the work on the papers project. johnson had some nasty things to say about martin king on those tapes. once johnson pushed those bonds, other black leaders came out publicly against martin. even if martin tried mightily not to take a public stance, at some point he would have felt compelled to do so. once he had done so, were he still around today, then what is the response going to be? >> i think you have to expect that those in power do not like people who speak truth to power. they would rather have flexibility that comes not out -- from not having strong grass- roots movements pushing them to do whatever things it wanted to. i think t
. and his number three problem is he faces a staunchly obstructionist party in opposition. i would expect him to concentrate on trying to get his health reform package, otherwise known as obama care, sort of put in concrete. it's still vulnerable in places. and tweak it. i'll be very surprised if he doesn't make that if not his first priority, his number one legislative priority. >> grover norquist, do you have your battering rams ready for the president? the debt ceiling bustup to come. the republicans making clear they'll fight him all the way on that. i get a sense the president can be as bold and audacious as he wants in this inaugural speech yesterday but you guys aren't going to let him get away with very much. >> he has two problems. one is the republicans won the house of representatives. boehner was elected leader of the house as much as the president was elected to run the executive branch. so he can't pass something through congress without getting a republican house. he has another problem, that's a democratic senate. 20 democrats are up for re-election in 2014. they're not as

threat than our national debt. what obama was trying to say is we need to have a reasoned discussion. i'm tired of saying this side and this side, let's meet in the middle. let's acknowledge certain -- >> the republican party had up until recently acknowledged a common science, and then as part of this crazy admission requirement for the republican candidacy for president, you have to disown all that, all that knowledge. >> that's exactly right. i think he felt so comfortable saying what he said yesterday because the american people were with him on election day. you know, they stood up and they said, no, this is time for reasonable discussion on issues. this wasn't just one set of issues. the american people, and our research at emily's list has shown that particularly women voters, just want some common sense discussion on these issues to look for policies to lead us forward. >> the speech is being interpreted as a defense of liberalism. i saw it as him saying these are issues to talk about. he wasn't outlining specific means of confronting them. wasn't saying government has to solve

of that engagement. obama still has not crossed that threshold where he is engaged individually, not just with the leaders in the republican party but the leaders in his own party. >> rose: the first question is that part of his dna, you know. and even his core competence to do that. my second point is does he believe it's effective. i don't know if i believe what he says it accomplished objectives. >> it may be with the republicans that it wasn't able to accomplish the objective. that he himself has said he plays golf with boehner but then nothing happened after that. but i think he still has room to get the democrats in those rooms more, to bring them over more, to keep his own base happy and going. i think it is in his dna. one of the other interesting things he said in the interviews in that first term he really wanted to spend time with his kids, they were growing up. that's the base of his security, it's the base of who he is. thank god we have a grounded president but now they don't want to spend time with him anymore so he's got more time to have these democrats floating around.
the second obama term. here's what john says. dave in lancaster, ohio, on our republican line. caller: good morning. i am republican. i want to encourage the party to really stand strong and hold their resolve to find a path to balance the budget. they talk about tax increases on the top 1% and tax breaks for the different class as. any more, it seems to me, that we do not have an upper, middle, or lower class. we have the haves and have-nots. we need to move in the direction, starting with the budget, to close the gap and bring back the middle class. host: can give us more specifics about what that would mean to you? what would congress do? caller: i would say, first, the debt ceiling there were talking about passing, i think it's a good time, a good thing for the short term. but what is stopping them from in may saying we need three more months and just kicking the can down the road? there has to be some consequences for republicans and democrats to actually say you've got to do this by a certain time or you don't have any more money to spend, so you don't get a raise. something has to be
to control that chamber, days after president obama gave an inaugural speech at that seemed to carry some pointed attacks directored at the republican party. here are excerpts of that. >> we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. we do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky. or happiness for the few. the commitments we made to each other, through medicare, medicaid and social security. these things do not sap our initiative. they strengthen us. [applaus [applause]. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. we, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. we cannot mistake absolutism for principles or substitute spectacle for politics or treat name-calling as reasoned debate. >> megyn: we heard from a top white house advisor who said the barrier to progress here, in many respects, deficits, gun legislation, the economy, that there ar
, they are going to be a party of absence. secretary clinton and president obama, something that couldn't be avoided. something that wasn't on the radar for them. they have to get over losing two presidential elections and let's come together. the best thing for them to do is to get on with it. we are a progressive country and we need to be progressive in our thinking. host: do you think the questions by republicans were fair or too tough? caller: especially my representative from south carolina, joe wilson, the man who called the president a liar and the other representatives from south carolina. they want to be stuck in the past and they aren't thinking progressively and that's where this country is headed. host: the new chairman of the committee is ed royce of california. and one of his questions for secretary clinton was why weren't the -- why were the security forces withdrawn from benghazi. and here's what she had to say. >> there's a lot of important questions in that, mr. chairman. and let me begin by saying that i was aware of certain incidents at our facility and the attack on
for the laqud party yesterday. new centrist party had a surprisingly strong showing in israel and could force a more earnest push for peace-making with the palestinians. the obama administration is equipping egypt with state-of-the-art weaponry despite the government's open hostility toward israel. shannon bream are telling us what you are spending the equipagess now. >> four american f-16 fighter jets are in egypt as a foreign age pact that some republican lawmakers believe should be reconsidered. in light of history of anti-semitic remarks by mohammed morsi. former head of the muslim brotherhood. >> we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred toward the jews. and all those who support them. >> morsi mocked president obama after his 2009 cairo speech. >> he uttered many lives he couldn't have fulfilled a single word even if he were sincere, which he is not. >> the military aid package part of a deal struck with then egyptian president hosni mubarak in 2010 includes 16 f-16 and 200 tanks. some member of congress fear egypt islamist leder could use the weapons against
country, which needs investment, which needs community. and i think we're seeing a republican party in full disarray that doesn't let the democratic party off the hook. it needs to speak to the inequality in this country, which president obama is beginning to move toward. but when 93% of the national growth goes to 1% of the americans, that is not a healthy economy. and i do think it's incumbent upon us. and i think it's important to note that rush limbaugh, who very happily, his hucksterism and demagoguery has been put into the dustbin of history here, fox is in a delusional time warp and it is trending downwards. but it is incumbent on the media to laser-like understand that joblessness, not deficit and debt, is the major crisis of our time. that inequality is and the corporate power, which you well know, ed, remains a force, even while the great social movements of our time, from seneca falls, the women's rights movement, to selma, the civil rights movement, to stonewall, the great inclusion of gay rights, the gay rights movement. those are critical. but we also have a political
party view that abortion should be illegal without any exceptions. the poll found that 70% oppose overturning roe v. wade compared to just 24% who support overturning the roe v. wade decision. president obama released this statement today. on the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade, we reaffirm its historical commitment to protect the health and reproductive rights of women, and the standing that government should not interfere with the most private family matters and women should be able to make their choices about their bodies and health care. today, the efforts to reduce unintended pregnancies, and minimize the need for abortion. on this anniversary we re-commit ourselves to supporting women and families and the choices they make and redouble the efforts to promote safe and healthy communities. joining me now is cecille richards, the president of planned parenthood. it is striking that the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade, there are no women alive before roe v. wade knew a world in which there was not the opportunity. >> and the nbc poll is fascinating. it really shows there is cons
power here in washington. on monday, we saw a president and a party that appeared to have shifted into reverse and jammed on the gas. for democrats in the obama age, the era of big government being over is officially over, and anybody who disagrees with their approach isn't just wrong. they're not just standing in the way of progress. they are malevolent. they are the bad guys. they are the ones who want to take food away from children. they want the old and the infirm to suffer. they want to choose between caring for the people who built this country, as the president put it on monday, and investing in those who will build our future. now, i don't know if the president really buys all this stuff. i don't know if he believes his own caricature. i certainly hope not. but one thing i do know is that questioning the intentions of one's political opponents makes it awfully hard to get anything done in a representative democracy. as the president himself said, without so much as a hint of irony, we cannot mistake absolutism for principle or substitute spectacle for politics or treat na

-control measures and whether a drawn-out debate over the second amendment could imperil the rest of the party's initiatives, particularly on immigration. for all of the revelry surrounding the president's second inauguration this week, mr. obama, his aides and congressional allies know their window of opportunity narrows with each passing month." jeff, fascinating. there's so many things to talk about here. let's start, though, first with the realization because it's so important, they do realize, then, that their window narrows every month and basically by the midterms, they're coasting to the end. >> and i think some people in the west wing aren't even sure they have until the midterms. they know they have 2013 or they hope they have 2013. one problem is always unexpected things happen that the white house isn't even thinking of right now. in reporting this story, we found out that president obama is actually aware of this. he is more self-aware than i perhaps thought he was on this. he's been looking at george w. bush's early part of the second term. but the question is what are they going
